Tennis star Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi has announced to boycott the upcoming Davis Cup tie against India as his protest against the International Tennis Federation's decision to deprive Pakistan for hosting the Davis Cup tie.

The ITF had moved the Davis Cup tie against India from Pakistan to a neutral venue citing security issues after Indian players refused to tour Pakistan.

Aisam-ul-Haq said there is absolutely no threat foreseen for the Indian tennis team in Pakistan as hundreds of Indians are regularly visiting Pakistan to perform their religious activities in various places like Kartarpur, Nankana Sahib and Taxila.
